I am an Assistant Professor at Oregon State University. As part of the School of Mechanical, Industrial, and Manufacturing Engineering and the Collaborative Robotics and Intelligent Systems (CoRIS) Institute, I am researching socially assistive robotics, haptics, and robots in the arts. I am recruiting students in robotics, mechanical engineering, computer science, and the arts to join my research projects in socially assistive robotics, haptics, and robots in entertainment.
Previously, I completed my Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mechanics at the University of Pennsylvania GRASP Lab under Professor Katherine Kuchenbecker and worked as a postdoctoral scholar with Professor Maja Matarić in the Interaction Lab at the University of Southern California.
